Limited colored vinyl LP pressing including digital download including complete unedited 1974 tape. 2016 collection containing previously unreleased material from Tiny. Overdubs produced by Richard Barone (The Bongos) and featuring Tiny's cousin Eddie Rabin on piano, Donovan drummer "Candy" John Carr, and other special guests. All Aboard! Tiny Tim is taking us for a wild ride down the gramophone horn as he resurrects the sounds of yesteryear - his way. Tiny Tim's America began in 1974 when Tiny Tim recorded a rehearsal tape alone in his New York City hotel room. Now, Ship To Shore Phono Co. has reunited Tiny with his producer Richard Barone and his cousin, pianist and arranger Eddie Rabin, to help Tiny complete the album he began 42 years ago! Featuring Tiny's renditions of a rich collection of turn of the century, Edison cylinder-era songs, Tiny Tim's America showcases Tiny at his best; free from the constraints of producers and studios, and displaying the breadth of his musical knowledge and true depth of his ability as a performer.
